What a week! Lots going on here which means it’s time for a news update. We get some awesome love from the guys at Tested.com, The 2014 Contest results are in, Christophe Desse’s Krabbel-Tiere (Krab Walker for short) is up for preorders as well as the Mushroom Goblin, and a slew of restocks are in. Let’s get started!
Dystopic is Tested »
Adam Savage and Norman Chan did an hour long YouTube video building up two of our Derek Stenning’s Dystopic kits. The video is a must-watch for anyone into modeling, toys, etc…
Unfortunately Dystopic is out of stock but I put in an order for more which should be ready for sales in April. Meanwhile we have Derek Stenning and Gene Gampbell’s EK Cosmonaut #3 in-stock and the EK #2 Cosmonaut (female) is currently in production with preorders for her first edition expected to start in April.
2014 Model of the Year Contest Results »
Congratulations go to Georges Le Bras who’s “Remora Ketchup or Mustard” build-up has won our 2014 Model of the Year. I need to construct and paint Georges Trophy (sorry!!! I’ve been REALLY busy here!) and get that sent out to him. All five of the finalists will receive a $10 off coupon code as well for their next purchase. Thanks to everyone for supporting this venture, building and showing off our kits, and for just enjoying the hobby in general. I can’t wait to see what next year’s entries look like!
Christophe Desse’s Krabbel-Tiere Preorders »
Christophe Desse’s Krabbel-Tiere (or Krab Walker for easy writing) is now up for preorders. This kit comes with two figures, many small parts, and a lot of details. Photoetch and deluxe waterslide decals as well as wire and full-color instructions (you know… our normal package) come with the kit. Get your Krab here and don’t forget to pair it up with one of Christophe’s Ground Crew or Flight Ready figure sets.
Mushroom Goblin News »
I received a box a few days ago from the caster before their 2-week vacation. They only had time to produce 10 Mushroom Goblins so far and those have shipped out to the first orders in the shop system. (first orders in, first orders shipped to be fair) The rest should be here by the end of March. The kit has been such a hit that I ordered another full run of kits so this first edition will be 100 pieces. Preorder your Mushroom Goblin complete with real chain mail, wire, and full-color instructions here.

The Question of “Coming Soon” »
Our shop system can be a little confusing due to it’s own inherent limitations. Both out-of-stock and coming soon items both say “Coming Soon” and “Out of Stock” and I just can’t change that/separate the two. A good rule of thumb here is that if the price is $0.00 that is a product that has not been released yet and we’re still in-production/determining a price. Otherwise if the item does have a price and it says coming soon, that means we sold out and are making more. If something is completely out of production (which is rare, but happens) we’ll just remove it from the shop to avoid confusion. For any item that’s “Coming Soon”, please enter your email address on the items page to get an automated notification when that product is restocked. It really works! Thanks!
